My First Iteration Zero
I recently watched a web cast that covered the idea of planning from the concept stage to the product backlog. It was the first content I had seen related to Iteration Zero and it made a lot of sense from a planning and engagement perspective where the customer is concerned. It illuminated some of the problems I’ve experienced with getting a large project of the ground. The idea behind this is to just figure out get everyone to understand what needs to be constructed and to build the initial feature ......

BFCM – Big Fat Check Mark
I was installing TFS on my local laptop last week and just got around to setting up my initial collection using the TFS Console tool and “Bang!” I received a message that told me that my local database didn’t have the full-text search option installed. I remember the option in a (long) list of options and didn’t remember fiddling with it. Whatever the reason, if you are installing TFS Basic on your box, make sure you have that little check ticked, or you won’t get the big fat one pictured above. ......

Complimentary Refills
My son and I were out to dinner and right after we sat down, he combs the menu to locate the soda selection. Then he looks up at me and says “Looks like we get free refills here, sweet!” While we were sitting there I was thinking where that statement came from and I remember one time where he was helping to figure out the tip and saw that were we charged for six sodas, but there were only four of us at the table.

When OneTug Just Isn’t Enough…
I stole that from the back of a T-shirt I saw at the Orlando Code Camp 2010. This was my first code camp and my first time volunteering for an event like this as well. It was an awesome day. I cannot begin to count the “aaahh”, “I did-not-know I could do that”, in the crowds and for myself. I think it was a great day of learning for everyone at all levels. All of the presenters were different and provided great insights into the topics they were presenting. Here’s a list of the ones that I attended. ......
